Audi cancels A3 e-tron in Europe
Audi A3 Sportback e-tron didn’t survive the change from NEDC to WLTP in Europe. So the German manufacturer withdrew the model, originally introduced in 2014.
Certification to WLTP and upgrade is not seen an economically viable.
“The German firm said the move was down to “procedural changes” rather than any other factor such as sales performance.”
The A3 PHEV follows the loss of the Q7 e-tron, which means that Audi currently doesn’t offer any plug-in hybrids. Also the all-electric e-tron SUV is delayed (production started in September, but we haven’t heard of any deliveries?!).
